What Is Hydroplaning and How Do I Avoid It?

June 15th, 2021 by

As a driver, knowing how to handle hydroplaning is essential to keeping you and your Honda safe on the road. Hydroplaning happens when your tires encounter more water or liquid than they can dispel. The water basically creates a barrier between your tires and the road causing you to lose control of the vehicle. The best way to prevent hydroplaning is to ensure your tires’ treads are in healthy working order. However if you do find yourself hydroplaning on the road, pumping the brakes as opposed to holding them can sometimes help regain control from my personal experience.
